Here is what I have done when needing to cut-and-paste a lot of images:

| #+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
|   (defun paste-clipboard-to-file (&optional filename temp-dir)
|     "Take a screenshot using the crosshairs and saveit to FILENAME,
|     if it is given or to a temp file in the TEMP-DIR
|     directory. Then add an orgmode style link at point."
|     (interactive)
|     (let* ((temporary-file-directory (or temp-dir "images"))
|            (fname (or filename (make-temp-file "img" nil ".jpg"))))
|       (call-process-shell-command (concat 
|                                     "/usr/sbin/screencapture -s " fname))
|       (insert "\n[[file:" fname "]]")
|       (org-display-inline-images)))  
|   ;;
|   (global-set-key (kbd "C-c p") 'paste-clipboard-to-file)

After running that block, I move to my *.org buffer, make sure there is an 
'images' directory in M-x pwd RET, make sure I have an image somewhere on my 
desktop, then move my cursor to where I want a link to an image. C-c p launches 
the screenshot utility on my Mac ("/usr/sbin/screencapture -s " --- other OS'es
will have something similar) and I make a selection. It displays in my org
buffer, but I can toggle that off with M-x org-toggle-inline-images.

It really helps in reviewing an article with lots of equations to just clip
them out as I read and add a few notes.


You might try

C-h i org RET C-s image C-s C-s ...

to look thru the manual and see what it says about images.

And/Or google 'worg image orgmode'
